I've just relocated to Asheville, NC from Colorado where I climbed sport (lead 5.10) and dabbled in trad. I've been in the gym since September and am itching to get outside. I'm in the process of putting a proper rack together but would like to apprentice with someone willing to show me the ways of Western NC's traditional routes.

I'm looking for someone who has the time/interest in getting out in the areas around Asheville to show a western sport climber the glory of proper trad climbing. I have a full sport rack, multi-pitch set up, and 70m rope. Will supply ample belays, compliments, and thanks to trad guru. I climb often at the Smoky Mountain Adventure Center and would be happy to meet there to trade sport leads indoors first.

Thanks so much!

Don't Fear The Gear!!!

Good luck man. Trad is a worthy game.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
